Top Ten Red Cook Pictures

Diana at Appetite for China tagged me to post my top 10 food pictures a few days ago. Diana has been a great supporter of Red Cook since the beginning. She has also become a comrade, through comments and email, in my quest for authentic and regional Chinese cooking. I was really excited and felt honored to be considered worthy to showcase photos of my blog. I really have only attempted food photography recently. Okay, only since I started Red Cook four months ago. But I am fortunate because I have some very talented photographers as friends. They have been amazingly generous in not only showing me the tricks of the trade but also took some of the photos for me. So here I salute my friends Go Lertworachon, Ron Boszko and Jeff Weiner. In fact a few in my top ten list are photos taken by Ron Boszko. I hope you enjoy them.

This “food photos madness” as Diana puts it was started by Anna of At Anna’s Kitchen. But what fun it is! As part of this exercise I am supposed to tag five other bloggers, via comments on their blogs, to list their top ten pictures. Here is the list of bloggers I tagged.

  1. Matt from Mattbites
  2. Aun from Chubby Hubby
  3. Robyn from Eating Asia
  4. Annie from A Good American Wife
  5. Kim from The Yummy Mummy Cooks Gourmet

Without further ado, here are the top ten photos from Red Cook in no particular order.

    Great photos! How did I miss the sweet and sour radish salad in your entries? We need to meet up (and maybe cook and eat!) the next time I go back to NYC!

    Diana, I would love to cook and eat together when you make a trip back to NYC. We’ll do one of my ten-course feast.

    Wow! I mean, WOW! So impressive. I’m a little embarrassed by my photos in comparison. By the way, next time you make those red pork dumplings? Invite me over, please!

    Anne, Yes we should get together, and I’ll make red cooked pork!
